Graduation Day Makeup Look


Hello Beauties! 

I am finally glad to say that your girl has finally walked across the stage yesterday as a graduate from 
Wake Forest University! Through CRB, I have been able to chart each year through fashion, trials, tribulations, and pure unadulterated fun! Since I did not get a chance to take pictures of the beautiful dress I wore yesterday to graduation, I decided to do a post on summer graduation makeup. 

I want to wish all the college graduates congratulations! 
This is the look I sported on the morning of my graduation.
Since I attended a school in North Carolina, the springs and summers are brutal.
Yesterday the weather was overcast, muggy and a bit rainy, so my makeup had to match the environment I was in:

Instead of using a full face foundation, I decided to go with:
1. A light weight tinted moisturizer from E.L.F.
2. MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer
3. E.L.F.'s pressed powdered
4. Urban Decay's Scandanavia Makeup Setting Spray

This makeup combination was both light, and full coverage for me. 
During a muggy, hot summer graduation, the one thing you do not 
want is to have your face melting on your beautiful ensemble. 
To add a bit of color to my face I used Wet n' Wild's Heather Silk Blush,
and four different mascaras from Sephora, Ulta, Clinique and Wet n' Wild, in order  
to bump up the volume on my thin lashes. 

This was my face before going out into the 
unpredictable North Carolina weather.

And this was my face during the ceremony. The lippy I have on is from
the Rimmel London Kate Moss Collection in Rosetto. 

After walking across the stage to get my degree, I could have cared less what my face looked like.
But....every girl should feel special on her big graduation day! 

Smooches!
